    The perfect song selection

    Proper song selection is the one of the ways we keep people tuned in all night and with our 200 plus song selection, we know exactly what the crowd wants to hear from minute to minute based on crowd response. We also recommend you request favorite hits to guarantee you get to hear all your favorites. If the band doesn’t perform the songs live, we can put together a custom DJ list of your favorite hits to DJ on our breaks. We can even throw in a few songs from other genres so the crowd gets a little variety thrown in the mix and also take requests through the night. The Grooves dance songs also include music from other styles such as Motown, reggae, swing, soul music, latin, r&b, and pop.


    Our band can perform a Custom Country set for your event

    The band’s performance is staged in accordance with the agenda for the evening. For weddings we usually start off during cocktail hour or dinner and play slower and mid tempo music at a lower volume so people can enjoy their conversations and cocktails without having to leave the room. Come party time, we perform high energy, full throttle entertainment that focuses on keeping the dance floor full with audience interaction. The Grooves engage the crowd with one sing-a-long after another in a series of rehearsed medleys and transitions all without missing a beat. We can also play all your requests and DJ any songs that are not on our performance list to make sure you get to hear every one of your country favorites as well as any other genre you prefer.


    All Sound and lights provided and we are fully self contained

    The Grooves provide quality sound and lighting production that surpasses the other bands attempting to play in our league. We have the best quality sound system with a brand new, state of the art mixing console, wireless microphones for the singers and a digital drum set that perfectly suits the needs of any room the party’s in. Our light show is unparalleled with our light engineer providing the best party lights for any song the crowd is ready to dance to.


    We have performed for over 95 weddings a year since 1991

    The Grooves have performed at an unrivaled amount of weddings throughout Austin, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, and the surrounding cities in this vast state of Texas. The band members are wedding experts and we work closely with brides, grooms, the parents, and the wedding planners so that all the details are ironed out to ensure the perfect wedding night. We also MC the wedding so the guests know who’s giving a toast, when the bouquet toss is happening, and other events they might otherwise miss, such as the cutting of the cake and the grand exit. The band will also DJ all break music and even cocktail hour if the Bride prefers it.


    we are the Fortune 500 company favorite and have the perfect familiy-friendly show for corporate events

    The Grooves provide the best in high-energy dance music for corporate events and holiday parties. We’ll keep your event dancing all night or even all weekend if our client prefers, so that come Monday everyone will be talking around the water cooler about what a great time they had with everyone at work. They’ll especially be talking about you know who because of you know what, and everyone will know each other a little bit better because they love their job. When it comes to award ceremonies, The Grooves work closely with technical directors, production managers, and coordinators to ensure a flawless and professional ceremony from start to finish.



    The Grooves are no strangers to rodeo parties and play several a year here in Texas. We play Rodeo after parties for the employees and we’ve even played BBQ cook offs before and after the rodeo’s main events. The band plays outdoor auditoriums, large scale tents, arenas, and even smaller exclusive events when the party needs an awesome country band to keep the crowd going all night. We even open up for large, well known national artists that are huge in the country scene. If your rodeo party needs professional entertainment for a large scale crowd, The Grooves are your band.

    Attire to match the theme of your party

    The Grooves dress according to the event of the night. The band will dress in full country attire for that Texas country experience your party needs, or in tuxedos for the men and the finest upscale garments for the lovely ladies of the band. When the coordinator is looking for something in between then we’ll mix it up with our personal favorite, the Texas Tuxedo, with Tux shirts, vests, blue jeans and boots. We’ll top it off with some cowboy hats and everyone will have a good ol’ fashion Texas size party.

    THE GROOVES ARE THE BAND YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!! The band knocked it out of the park at my daughter’s wedding reception! My wife and I haven’t danced like that in ages. Great song selection and great energy on stage. Very professional Band!

    Charles Paulson

    I just have to say that The Grooves made our wedding an evening to remember forever. They came highly recommended by my musician friends and they did not disappoint. We were running a little late on schedule, but the coordinator told us she had worked with the band before and there was nothing to worry about. They were so flexible with our schedule that we were able to have a good time at our own pace. We just had to thank the band in person after the show and they played my wife and I a personal last song of the night after everybody walked outside. It was comforting having that level of professionalism at our wedding. It was like our own personal concert! I will definitely recommend them to anybody we know getting married!

    Ron Metzger

    You guys were awesome!! Thanks again Ron for being so accommodating to our Christmas party! Everyone had a great time and came into work the next week bragging about the band! GREAT SHOW!!

    Jerry Ryan 

    We just wanted to say thank you Ron for putting on such a great show the other night! Please tell the rest of the band thank you for us! The band was so talented. You guys sounded great, looked great and were fun on and off stage. Our friends kept complimenting us for hiring the right band. The photographers got a bunch of great shots of you guys and we’re using them for our wedding album. How can we forget a night like that?! Good luck Ron! Hope to see you all again soon!
